Summer Fellows Research

May 2020 - July 2020 Collegeville, PA
“I loved that I was able to do research on a topic that I am interested in. I was able to work with two Ursinus professors from the Chemistry and Biology departments and one other Ursinus student to do research about combatting antibiotic resistance with the use of carbon nanomaterials. Because of the circumstances this year, I was not able to go into the lab, but my mentors were able to and they would send pictures of the data they collected. I researched multiple articles and analyzed the data that they sent me. I was able to gain so much useful knowledge about microbiology, and we even came up with some interesting results! This experience encouraged me to continue pursuing my passions of science and helping others.”
